I don’t want to draw any conclusions about this morning’s shooting in Alexandria, VA, in which Rep. Steve Scalise, Republican House Whip, was shot. I did want to mention the shooting, as well as what we know so far. CNN does have regular updates, so I’m linking to it here.
A gunman opened fire at a congressional baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia, on Wednesday, injuring Rep. Steve Scalise, a senior Republican politician, as well as others, according to Rep. Mo Brooks, who was at the practice during the attack.
A note on the report. I don’t know if Brooks just doesn’t understand firearms, or whether CNN’s reporting is dumb, or whether it’s an unfortunate combination of both, but this…
“The gun was a semiautomatic,” Brooks said. “It continued to fire at different people. You can imagine, all the people on the field scatter.”
In any case, it appears at least one Capitol Police officer was shot, and the suspect is in custody. I won’t keep updating this, but will rather do a longer post once the story is solidified.
Thoughts with everyone involved.
UPDATE: I just ran across this on my lunch 5 minutes, so I thought I’d quickly update this post. The rancid bag of stale effluvia who went on a shooting spree in Alexandria this morning has been identified as the now thankfully deceased and rotting in hell James T. Hodgkinson of Belleville, Illinois. His FaceBook page is awfully illuminating. He’s apparently a rabid socialist piece of shit and a Bernie Sanders supporter. His profile photo is the following graphic, and his cover photo is a picture of a grinning Bernie Sanders.
Court records also show Hodgkinson was arrested in 2006 on the suspicion of battery, domestic battery, criminal damage of property and reckless discharge of a firearm.”
The Chicago Tribune reports this violent, pro-tyranny cocksucker has a long history of being a… well… tyrannical, socialist cocksucker.
Over the years, Hodgkinson wrote more than a dozen letters to the editor of the local paper in which he supported higher taxes and advocated for Democratic candidates, such as John Kerry.
You want a civil war? Because that’s how you start a civil war, assholes. I didn’t think it would be long before the fascist dildoes of the progtarded left graduated from bottle throwing and forcibly shutting down opposing voices to shootings and murder.
Guess what, assholes! We’re way better armed and prepared than you are. You will die much like this unhinged knob-gobbler – painfully and alone and reviled by all normal people.
